The object of this study is to provide an empirical account of the nature and scope of home invasion robbery, an emerging form of serious and organised crime in Canada. This is situated within the ongoing definitional debate of what constitutes organised crime. It is also contextualised with anomie theory to elaborate the impact of American Empire upon Canada through the intertwined vehicles of law and political economy. A case study of home invasion robbery is provided that illustrates the spectrum of criminal enterprise this phenomenon is linked to or represents. I also provide an analysis of the rise in the use of financial intelligence in Canada's fight against serious and organised crime, and the links this may entail with respect to home invasion robbery.
